hey everyone! i’m charlotte, welcome or welcome back to my blog! since i’ve been redecorating my room lately, i just wanted to share some ideas for anyone who needs them. enjoy!
the first thing that’s really important is to envision what you want your room to look like in the end. this is different for everyone, so keep in mind that you don’t have to have the perfect pinterest bedroom. (although looking at room ideas on pinterest is fun!)
the second thing is to lay out what you want to change and what you want to keep. if possible, make a list of supplies that you’ll need! this is really important, especially if you need to persuade your parents. for example, if you want to turn your bed to face another wall and put a shelf above it, list what direction you want your bed to face and the shelf that you want to buy! i’m repainting my walls in the near future, so i wrote down the color that i wanted and what my parents would need to paint them. this helped convince them!
the third thing is to get rid of things you don’t need anymore. if you have guilty pleasures, make sure to put them in a keepsake drawer. examples of these can be old pictures of you, your favorite stuffed emotional support animal from when you were a month old, and stuff that you wouldn’t necessarily keep but feel too bad to throw away. cleaning your room is tedious but fun. if you really, really don’t want to clean up, just try to take it in small strides. one day, work for 5 minutes, the next, 10, the next, 15, or however many works for you.
if you still live with your parents, you need to convince them to let you redecorate. if they say no to major things, there are other ways that you can make small changes to your room, such as rearranging small furniture or designing new art. in the next post, i’ll be talking about small changes like that that are easy to carry out!
thanks for reading, everyone! i know i have a crazy posting schedule, but i’ll try to work something better out, and post that soon! have an amazing day! ❤
